as president of the united states. hasn't passed a budget in three years. i'm interested in what it is the president has actually done other than give speeches that makes them believe he deserves another four years. my point is he's a person in love with the sound of his own voice. he loves giving speeches but he doesn't love following through on his promises. >> the economy is not great by any means but there have been millions of jobs that have been created when he took office about 700,000 or 800,000 jobs month were being created and there's been a steady job increase over these months. it's nowhere near where it should be but it is still a lot better than three or four years ago. >> but it's not better. there's over 560,000 people still not employed today that were employed four years ago. if we had the same rate of people that were actually looking for work in the marketplace, we'd be at over 10.5% unemployment. he said he's going to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term? if there was ever a voek fjoke promise that wasn't even attempted to be followed through
enlightened than that of the united states of america. matched only perhaps by the -- by the admission, policy of governor schwarzenegger in california. who knows who his secretary of state might be. there are a lot of names floating out there. bob zellic, president of the world bank. was one. he believes that -- in dealing with china and other countries that, what's we should ask of countries is to be responsible stake holders in a rule based international economy. that's pretty close to the theme of bruce's paper. here is the one exception which i think will, is both curious in terms of its motivation and -- and affect -- and will probably fade. and that is, a lot of -- sort of cheap, bashing of other countries. john michael and i make the point in our paper that every country on the planet with two exceptions has to hope and pray is never mentioned during american presidential campaign. because if it is mentioned it is going to be bad. two exceptions are israel and great britain. and, of course, china has come up a lot. russia has come up a lot. for some reason has declared that russia is t

by alleging the president of the united states was not really the president of the united states. he intimated that president obama is secretly foreign. that was the basis of the donald trump flash in the pan candidacy years ago. >> why doesn't he show his birth certificate? i think she should. three weeks ago when i started, i thought he was born in this country and now i have doubt. >> based on what? >> his grandmother said he was born in kenya and she was there and witnessed the birth. he doesn't have a birth certificate or he hasn't shown it. if you are going to be the president of the united states you have to be born in this country and there's a doubt as to whether or not he is. >> that little brain curdling wallow in celebrity driven up chuck came to an abrupt end about one year ago when on a wednesday afternoon, the president of the united states held a press conference at the white house to release his freaking birth certificate, to put that nonsense to rest. that was on a wednesday afternoon. three days later on saturday, it was the white house correspondence dinner where the presid
the effort? joining me now is james spidermarx. so, some u.s. lawmakers said the united states should take the lead and involve itself militarily. why is syria different than let's say libya. syria certainly had a greater population, a smaller piece of geography, therefore, it's a lot more urbanized and it becomes a very entangled and tough target to go against. unlike libya that had pocket of e resistance that were spread out and there seemed to be at some point, a unified opposition against gadhafi. so that answer to the question in terms of the difference between those two. in other words, it's a tougher nut to crack, a harder problem and would entangle us greatly. >> when you say something shouldn't be done, what is that something that should be done? >> well, clearly, what has to happen is the united, let's take it from the top and work our way down. united states is going to lose in this particular confrontation if russia brokers the deal to try to get assad to step aside. russia then is the peacemaker, russia owns the cards and have now caused this great con fill in syria to go away

reverend wright had with the president of the united states since he took the oath of office? >> you know, they haven't had any. president obama was clear that mr. wright's views didn't reflect the president's views. this required moral leadership on mitt romney's part to stand up to the extreme voices in his party. once again, he didn't rise to the occasion. one of the things he tried to do today is equate this hateful attack with a simple discussion of governor romney's economic record we had in this campaign. we've seen this from romney before. he didn't stand up to one of the symbolic heads of the republican party, rush limbaugh when he made those hateful comments against sandra fluke. we've been clear whether supporter of the president or person that used this rhetoric, and romney didn't stand up. >> he said he repudiated this style of campaign. do you believe him? >> he was asked later in the day about his comments earlier in the year about reverend wright you played not too long ago. he said he stood behind them. time and time again, he had the opportunity to stand up to the extrem
today, what if anything should the united states be doing about this? conor powell is tracking the syrian story from just over the story in israel today. conor? >> reporter: megyn, finding the solution to end that bloodshed in syria seems to be fading with every passing day now. the international community is picking up diplomatic pressure on syria. the united states, great britain and other countries expelled syrian diplomats but that diplomatic pressure hasn't really changed the violence on the ground. it continues every single day. as you pointed out 13 people were found dead in eastern syria today by u.n. observers. they said their hands were bound and they were shot at close range. the city of homs has been just pounded in the last 24, 36 hours or so with a barrage of artillery and rockets coming from syrian forces. we don't know how many people have been killed in homs in the past day or so but it has the potential to be substantial. now that diplomatic pressure though doesn't seem to have much of an impact. today russia and china have given a boost to syria. both those c

, and it was the right thing to do. >> the president of the united states today chose an interview with robin roberts to make news and to make history. >> over the course of several years as i talked to friends and family and neighbors, when i think about members of my own staff who are incredibly committed, monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships, raising kids together, when i think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf, and yet feel constrainted, even now that don't ask, don't tell is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point i just concluded that for me personally, it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that i think same-sex couples should be able to get married. >> white house officials are leaking a background story that sounds like the stuff of fiction and just may be. as the story goes, the president planned to announce his support for marriage equality sometime before the democratic national convention in september, but then vice president biden said this on "meet the press." >>
